where on earth has the time gone? We are half way through the year already and the boys went back to school today! Although the meal planning is all still relatively new for me to blog about I am enjoying all the planning. Last week was a little different as we went camping and it was our first time taking the kids. Previously Mark and I would just live off spam (remember spam!?) and fry ups but we had to think a little harder for the boys.
We thought if we brought a big bag of pasta then we could take tinned Hot Dogs, Meatballs etc but we ran into a bit of a problem. It ended up taking almost half an hour to just boil the pan of water for the pasta let alone actually cook it! In the end we ate barely cooked pasta and decided we needed to rethink our meals. A quick trip to the local camping shop and one evening we ate a tin of beans and sausages with bread and butter and the other night we had a BBQ on the beach!
So this week was a little different because I went shopping today rather than going tomorrow. The boys have a clubs on Tuesday so dinner will be something quick and easy for them.
Spaghetti Bolognaise – The boys favourite dish! I think given half a choice they would choose to have this everynight!
Chicken Nuggets and Chips – Like I said before both boys have clubs so it needs to be something quick and easy!
Chicken and Bacon Pie, buttered potatoes, Sweetcorn and green beans
Sausage, Mash and Onion Gravy!
Fish in Sauce and Pasta! – It has been awhile since we last had this meal!
